County All 18 counties east of the Cascades and two in southwest Oregon.

Americans need a fair-share tax system capable of funding Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, and veterans’ services. I support repeal of the $1.5 trillion tax giveaway Congress gave to major corporations and wealthy individuals, which exploded the federal debt. Expanded federal investments in communication, energy, health care, transportation and water infrastructure are central to my platform of building stronger communities and promoting economic innovation, especially in rural communities.
I am committed to improving universal and affordable access to the full range of physical and behavioral health services for all Americans. Federal investments to improve access to broadband, renewable energy, transportation and water infrastructure also are central to my economic prosperity platform. My focus will be ensuring rural communities see investments creating economic opportunities for businesses and workers to improve our quality of life.
By focusing on what unites us: caring for our common and basic needs. We all care for our families and communities, want health care for our families, educational opportunities for our children, and food on our tables. A strong economy helps our communities to thrive. Some in Congress work for corporate interests -- dismantling our healthcare, selling out our children's future with a deceptive tax bill, dividing us and undermining democracy. I am committed to a new brand of leadership.

Oregonian's lose everyday we wait on the state or federal government to solve our problems. Assistance goes hand in hand with low wages & the people on the receiving end choosing between the lesser of two evils to stay there rather than try to become self sufficient & make a better life for themselves & their families. Environmental protection is already at disaster levels so we have that covered despite cuts in the EPA. I believe real governmental cuts are needed rather than budget rearranging.
My primary concern is the restoration of forestry on federal lands & the saving of the environment from disease & fire. The prosperity generated from our forests formerly made Oregon the nations leader in building products & now with every effort by the federal government to restore that prosperity we end up on the losing end of a legal battle that has cost us high dollar jobs. My pledge is to put people back to work in high paying forest jobs whose wages expand throughout our local economy.
I’m an Independent. A vote for me is not a vote for the so called ‘Independent’ leadership eschewed by Bernie Sanders. In reality I’m a disenchanted life long Republican who sees very little difference between the current Republican & Democratic parties. I will vote for leadership & good legislation regardless of what political party it emanates from and my core governmental beliefs are less government spending & interference in your personal world makes for a prosperous, opportunistic future.
